5 Toilet Features to Avoid, Part 2

Well decorated tan and white bathroomWhen purchasing a new toilet for your home, you want to ensure you have the perfect fit for all of your needs. Though toilet shopping seems like a standard affair, there are a variety of features that you should avoid. Below are three more unwanted toilet features for your home.

  1. Colors

Though buying a colored toilet to match your bathroom may seem like a great idea, you will most likely regret it after a few years. Not only do colored toilets make it harder to change up the décor in your bathroom, but they can also negatively impact the resale value of your home. Your best option is to stick to plain and simple white.

  1. Non-Standard Replacement Parts

You may want a more unique looking toilet for your home, but those come with a price. Though that rectangular commode may fit your modern-theme perfectly, you will have to dish out additional money for its replacement parts. When you stick to a more straightforward, more standard design, it is much easier to replace and repair the parts when they wear out.

  1. Too Large for Your Space

When shopping for a new toilet, make sure to measure the space it will be in before you go out. The last thing you want is a new toilet that blocks the door or makes it impossible to access the sink in front of it. Though a longer toilet may seem better for comfort, an extra two inches could create many issues.
